OITNB writer comes out

LaurenMorelliLEAD 0OITNB writer Lauren Morelli came out back in May this year. She realised, through working with the writers and cast of the show, that she didn't just prefer 'reading a book' to sex. She also had to tell her husband that she was gay. It's been an interesting story for the lady who wrote the scenes between Piper and Alex 'hearting' each other as they rekindled their romance in Season 1.

She wrote on mic.com that "After lugging around a basket full of shame and guilt for the last year, there was a lightness that came with realizing that I could choose to replace my negative framing with honesty and grace."

Lauren finished her heartfelt piece with: "This is my story, which is messy and nuanced and a constantly moving target, but one I'm grateful for."

It's now out that she's divorcing her husband after a two year marraige and is seeing actress Samira Wiley, who plays Poussey on the show. When the couple left the Emmy's hand in hand, their relationship was now in the public domain. She seems much happier because of it.

We at g3 think they make a gorgeous couple and are very happy for them. It's sweet to see the couple not making statements but just holding hands and showing that they're in love.
